How did you feed stringBuilderObject ? You should have used the .Append method. Show us your code.

Dim sb As New StringBuilder()
Dim data(1024) As Char
Dim nBytes As Integer

Do
  nBytes = sr.Read(data, 0, 1024)
  sb.Append(data)
Loop While nBytes = 1024

TextBox1.Text = sb.ToString

'sr is a stream reader
'TextBox1 only shows the first appended data. i.e the first 1024 characters. If I change 1024 into 2048 TextBox1 shows the first 2048 characters.

This code is working well for me:

            Dim read(256) As [Char]

            ' Read 256 charcters at a time    .
            Dim intCount As Integer = readStream.Read(read, 0, 256)
            Do While intCount > 0
                ' Dump the 256 characters on a string and display the string onto the console.
                Dim str As New [String](read, 0, intCount)
                strData.Append(str)
                intCount = readStream.Read(read, 0, 256)
            Loop

Yes your code works but I want to understand why do you use brackets around Char and String?

You can remove them. That was copied from a website. These brackets are normally used when you need element names (variables, methods, enums, ...) with names that are normally invalids.
